It seems strange to me that ebump and echangelog can't share the user name and email address, but the manpages report:
~/.gentoo/gentool-env From this file, ebump will load the env vars AUTHORNAME and AUTHOREMAIL, which are used to generate proper ChangeLog entries.
If echangelog can’t figure out your username for the entry, you should set ECHANGELOG_USER. For example, export ECHANGELOG_USER="Aron Griffis
It would be nice if I didn't have to repeat my identity again (I already have it in environment for git, twice, and for Mercurial).
better to start using a project-wide variable
Works for me, having those differentiated is also a good idea if we're going to stress more on proxy maintainership.

> better to start using a project-wide variable
I added support for those variables.
So you might want take a look at http://sources.gentoo.org/viewcvs.py/gentoolkit?rev=561&view=rev
Feel free to test :)
gentoolkit-dev-0.2.6.11 has been released. I will close after independent
verification that the bug is fixed.
